Carnitas Taco Lettuce Wraps are all the things you love about carnitas tacos but wrapped in crunchy, low-carb lettuce.


  • 2 large ripe avocados

  • Juice from 1/2 lime

  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced

  • A pinch of salt

  • 1 large head of bibb lettuce (butter lettuce or romaine hearts also work)

  • 1/2 red onion, minced


  1. Start by making the Mexican Pork Carnitas. This will take you about 8 hours to make in your slow cooker or in a pot.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mash the avocados with lime juice, garlic, and salt.

  3. Put a scoop of carnitas in a bibb lettuce leaf, add a spoonful of the mashed avocados (guacamole), and top with a sprinkle of minced red onions.
